I haven't finished the game, yet, but I've seen enough to enjoy it. Any game that has me up until 4 am gets a gold star in my book.
I also really enjoyed Heavy Rain; but in-so-far HR kept you well on your toes and was well-paced from beginning to end and herein lies my only complaint with Beyond - It's paced horribly. I'm not going to say I don't like the "Fractured" method of story-telling because when it's done well the story flows from one point to the next. If the story starts in the middle and every time the user/reader finds themselves asking a question the author preempts this and answers it right away, leaving the viewer without having to think back too far in the material to connect the dots. Beyond's "Fractured" method of story-telling just bounces around from one event to the next and back again without any rhyme or reason shifting from exciting action to playing with Barbie dolls in a confined room. This story could have - nay, should have - been told linearly.
Other than that. Straight A. 9/10

Awesome story with a great ending. Only problem with the game is the order of the chapters, I wish it wasn't so jumbled up to build better suspense and you already know what is going to happen during a lot of times. I rated 10 only because of Ellen Page, I became a big fanboy lol
